Bedroom design, not sure if it flows, ensuite and walkin opposite ends

we have a small 3 bedroom bungalow, we would like to turn two bedrooms into one large with an en-suite and walk in closet.
The cost of plumbing and destruction of a developed basement to keep our bedroom in the back of house is extreme
A win win solution is en suite at one end, bedroom in middle and walk in closet at other end.
Most designs are the en suite and closet in the same area (at same end), would our design be way off?
The flow would be en suite, bedroom, walk in.

I think if it works in your situation it would be just fine. Our last house had them separated. Good luck with your reno.

They are all connected? Where would the entrance door be? Can you show a diagram?

How about walking into your bathroom via your walk in (ie switching the bed and the walk-in?). I am thinking of someone coming out of the shower and having to walk across the bedroom to get dressed which is not very practical.

A side thought is that your toilet seems awfully close to your sinks - is this just a topographical design?

Yes the drawing is not to scale, this is the only design that does not break the bank due to plumbing issues. To put the en suite any place else is a $4000 premium. We also don't want the bedroom where the walk in is, that is the front of the house. (noise)
We are worried that such a design would affect the marketability when it come times to sell.
I guess your comment "not very practical" sums it up. Don't want to make a 25,000 dollar mistake.

That is quite a predicament. Have you thought about installing phonic insulation on your windows. The price won't break the bank but will allow you more design 'freedom".
